Editorial Reviews

"It is the sort of book that benefits from being read from start to finish by the undergraduate as it covers everything (and more) that they will need for their exams... Anyone who is looking for contemporary orthodontic information suitable for undergraduates and general dental practitionerswill find everything they need in this book. It should be available in every dental school library." --Journal of Orthodontics
